The Hive



First Appearance

A Tangled Web

Thousands of bugs from hundreds of species crawled about the walls and floor. They crawled up her bed in a grotesque mob, a sea of limbs and carapaces. They crawled into her ears, her mouth… Every opening they could find, they entered, and she slept soundly through it all.

The Intrusion is a portrayal of The Fear of Nature that represents insect swarms and being invaded inside. It first appeared in the blog A Tangled Web, where it was depicted as a complex hive mind composed of many different arthropods that uses these bodies to reproduce. To this end it usually targets a human to use as a host for the process. The hives bore through the skin and crawl into every orifice on the victim, where it then lays its eggs. This normally causes the victim to become sick and sometimes delusional. After a few days, the eggs hatch, and the new bodies of the Intrusion eat the victim from within. The Intrusion will then begin searching for more hosts, perpetually spreading the infection with no end in sight.

Any harm done to the individual bodies of the Intrusion only serve to agitate it.

The Intrusion's servants are known as the Drones.

Its domain known as The Hive.
